Quality/Patient Safety


Providing quality health care and ensuring patient safety are top priorities for hospitals in New Mexico. Through innovative and aggressive statewide quality initiatives, New Mexico hospitals are working to become a national model for high quality health care.

Quality initiatives have successfully helped NMHA hospitals achieve significant reductions in avoidable readmissions, lower infection rates and improve surgical care outcomes. NMHA facilitates initiatives to reduce patient harm, save lives and improve efficiencies in health care.
